Upside of Procrastination

Procrastination saves you a lot of work. You wait until the need is pressing before taking action. Much of the time situations change and you may not need to take action. However, this strategy is lethal in dealing with global warming. If you wait until the results are painful, it is far too late to take action. The earth has astounding inertia. For now that inertia is protecting us. Later it will prolong the punishment of our descendants for our crimes.

Blowing Our Inheritance

Once three brothers made a huge Halloween score of 3 pillow cases of candy each. This was effectively an infinite amount of candy. They gorged themselves to the point of making themselves sick. They thought it would last forever, but, to their surprise it was totally gone in 2 months. This is much how humans are treating their massive inheritance of oil. They are squandering it, imagining it could never run out. Some twits have even claimed it can’t run out because it renews itself faster than it can be exploited, even though they have plenty of evidence to the contrary in the form of wells no longer producing.
